Ileal strangulation around mesovarium in a newborn foal
The article presents a case of a newborn foal (32 hours of life) with an acute abdominal pain. The foal was sent to the clinic after 24 hours of conservative treatment in the field. Physical examination revealed acute obstruction of the small intestine. The patient was admitted for emergency surgery. General multimodal anaesthesia with endotracheal tube placement and oxygen supplementation was performed. During medial laparotomy, about one meter of necrotic small intestine was resected, and the right ovary was removed. This surgical procedure was performed under general infusion multimodal anaesthesia with intratracheal administration of a mixture of oxygen and air. Postoperative recovery was uneventful, and no complications were observed. During the 5-month observation period, no disturbances in the somatic development and general condition of the patient were found.
